Distribution map of Acartia (Odontacartia) japonica by geographical zones
Loc:
Japan (Katae Bay: Simane Peninsula facing Japan Sea, Wakasa Bay)
N: 5
Lg.:
(182) F: 1,41-1,35; M: 1,24-1,19; (764) F: ± 1,65; M: ± 1,32; (866) F: 1,3-1,6; M: 1,2-1,3; {F: 1,30-1,65; M: 1,19-1,30}
Rem.: no synonym to Acartia amboinensis.
According to Ueda (1986, p.18) the close morphological similarity between A. australis and suggests that they may have undergone speciation recently. The author gives different explanations of the possible disjunction.
After Ueda & al., 1983 (p.167, Table 2 & p.169: Table 4) at Uchiura Bay (Japan): (1)-Shape and diameter of swarm, (2)-depth (m), (3)- swarming position, (4)-number of samples examined, (5)-Mean % of adults (range), (6)- Mean % of females among adults (range).
